U.S. Virgin Islands Quarter First Day Cover

On November 10, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will release the 2009 US Virgin Islands First Day Coin Cover. This will represent the fifth release of the DC & US Territories Coin Cover series.
Each cover includes one U.S. Virgin Islands Quarter from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. These quarters will be from the first day of production at each respective mint. The coins are mounted on a custom display card with a 44 cent United States Flag postage stamp. The postmark will be September 28, 2009, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, IV. This represents the first day the quarters were released to the public.

The covers are priced at $14.95 with a maximum production of 20,000 units.

Previously released 2009 Coin Covers for the DC & US Territories Quarters remain available for sale at the US Mint. As of the last weekly reporting period, the US Mint has sold 16,493 District of Columbia covers, 13,084 Puerto Rico covers, 9,476 Guam covers, and 7,513 American Samoa covers.

Letitia Tyler First Spouse Bronze Medal

On a separate note, the US Mint recently sold out of the Letitia Tyler First Spouse Bronze Medal. This medal went on sale July 2, 2009, priced at $3.50. Although the individual option is no longer available, the medals will be available again starting December 3, 2009 as part of the 2009 First Spouse Five Medal Set.

This year's First Spouse 5-Medal Set should be a winner. The Anna Harrison individual medal usually fetches around $20-$25 now when one shows up for sale. With the Letitia Tyler medal sold out now too, that gives even more reason to buy the set.

The set might not last for too long on the Mint's website, so it could be a source of some nice short-term markups. It's just something to think about.

Before this post gets hijacked, I would like to say that gold will go up. it will go down.

You idiot! It is going to go up!

Don't be a moron! It is going down.

Oh yea, I have more bullets than you! Anarchy rules!!!

You are such a nutjob. Gold will go down.

Now that that has all been said. I agree, the 5 medal set will be a winner.

Ha ha! That's so funny! I love it!

Seriously, I doubt this post will get hijacked for gold talk, but you never know! :)

The Virgin Islands coin cover should also be a winner. The one to REALLY keep an eye on will be the Northern Mariana Islands cover. It will only be sold for about 5-1/2 months if the Mint sticks to the pattern of pulling previous year coin items on June 30th of the following year. Who knows, the Mint might even make the limit on that cover a mere 15,000 units, too!

Check out the Mint's new "Last Opportunity" page. It even gives a day countdown that is left on the products!
